I typically am team pancakes hands down! I find they are easier to prepare and you don’t have to spend so much time cleaning up. However, from time to time I will make a huge batch of my easy peasy blender waffles to switch up my breakfast game. I will usually make a double batch and freeze half of the batch for a week I don’t have time to really prep breakfast.
The nice thing about these waffles, is you can mix up the toppings so there is variety in the meals you are having. It also makes it really fun to get creative with your topping based off what your body is craving in that moment.
One of my favorite combos, is a spin on peanut butter and jelly. I use almond butter for mine, but you can substitute any nut butter you’d like. The raspberry jam is super easy to make, you’ll never want to buy a store bought jam again after trying this and seeing how easy it is to make.
What you’ll need for the chia jam includes:
- 2 tsp chia seeds
- 1 cup fruit of choice (I used raspberries)
- 1 tbsp maple syrup
- 1 tbsp filtered water
- 1 tsp orange zest + 1 tsp fresh orange juice
Then all you need to do is add everything to a sauce pan on medium low heat, cook for 5 minutes, stirring throughout, turn off the heat, and let sit to firm up and turn into jelly like consistency. You can prep this jam ahead of time and store it in your fridge for when you are in the mood for this combination. Mine usually last between 3-4 days (depending on what I use it on).
You are going to layer some almond butter on the waffles, then add some of the raspberry jam, and top with banana coins.
For a more decadent option, drizzle some chocolate ghee, and top with coconut yogurt.
Keep it basic with the classic, almond butter and banana coin combo.
Get festive for holiday’s like the Fourth of July, and add some coconut shreds, fresh blueberries, strawberries, and maple syrup.
